He Thought Her a Jade . . .
Having risen from the squalor of London's back alleys to be the darling of Drury Lane, Meg Fletcher was indeed a consummate actress. And it took all her considerable skills to conceal her shock when she learned she was actually the legitimate daughter — and heir of Sir Richard Carswell, an aging baronet! Determined to learn why her mother fled her husband in terror all those years ago, Meg journeyed to Carswell Hall. There, in addition to gaping servants and a very surprised papa, she encountered the extremely unsettling Earl of Stanbrook, a deliciously handsome rake who seemed intent on proving that her innocence was the most intriguing act of all!
She Knew Him Fora Rogue . . .
Philip Rutland, the Earl of Stanbrook, was not at all amused when he saw the actress he'd been intending to seduce putting on airs at Carswell Hall in the role of virtuous, prodigal daughter. There was only one way a girl of her station could have come so far in the world. She might enjoy pretending she wasn't a bit of muslin to be won over with a few baubles, but he knew she was his for the taking. It would be trickier now that he knew she was of the Quality, but every gentlemen understood there were ways to bend the rules when wooing A SCANDALOUS LADY.
